im not really good at making one, but if i can give you advice, it would be to look for a gif of a good running cycle, and put it in your flash, there you could set the alpha to around 20 and begin tracing so that you get the basic idea of how the running movement should be
Well, the speed of the feet is constant. If you add a bit more speed at the landing of the feet and let the feet speed up while the feet are leaving the ground, you get a more fluent timing and more powerful steps.
Love the arm movements, the legs can use a little work, he should be making gigantic strides, not little baby strides Although, I'm one to talk, I can't do run cycles, walk cycles are my limit xD but good job, and keep running xD
well to be honest this is my 2nd try on animating person lol, the first one was walk cycle and its horribad. yap, it looks more like jogging instead of running XD, i'll try for a wider strides next time, thankies :]
